  1. More improvement. In the headvoice, my vowels were too throaty, impeding my ability to go higher. In particular, changing the "ah" vowel to more forward resonating has improved my headvoice greatly. "Got Me Wrong" by AIC "Creep" by STP "Room a Thousand Years Wide" by Soundgarden (this one's a bit tricky to play guitar and sing to, with the 6/4 time and all, so forgive my inconsistent playing)
  2. Smooth octave siren from B3-B4. A little bit of shaky vibrato on top as well.
  3. Here it is: my C#5. It's damn ugly, but it's there and connected with chest voice.
  4. Can't you tell this is a cut above all else that I've posted on here, though? The vowels just sound right. I still have no definitive answer for why that is. I can objectively listen to this and say "this is a huge improvement"
  5. My best version of Rooster yet.
  6. My A#4 is getting a lot stronger; I can now apply that note to lyrics that are non-lexical vocables pretty well, without fear of losing much support. B4 is still giving me a ton of trouble. Here is another segment of "Love Hate Love" which uses A#4
  7. Shoot Robert an email, he's always eager to help guide you through the program. When I started out with 4 pillars, I was at a loss as to what to start with, so I can't blame you.
  8. It seems to me that there are 2 types of beginner male singers regarding head voice: those who resort to a strained, pushy, shouty belt-like phonation, and those who resort to a near-falsetto or falsetto phonation. I was definitely the first, and it seems like you were too.
  9. There should be a break at the first passaggio. I'm speaking from my own experience; when I started out, I struggled greatly with anything above D4. By F4 I was straining. By G#4 I was screaming. I don't hear that in the recording, so good on you 2 cats. As for the "compressed falsetto," you're right. What I meant to say was I heard a more compressed falsetto, one that doesn't sound airy, Point is, I'm rather impressed hearing this from a person just starting out.
  10. Jonjon, that doesn't really sound like chest voice to me, more like a compressed falsetto. Also, I'm impressed there is no noticeable break from his chest to falsetto.
  11. Hey, You're going to want to start with the "foundation building routine" and then progress from there. You can do other exercises with it as well, but it's imperative that you master that part. Also, you can create your own 4 pillars progress thread (it's under the "vocal training programs" section of the forum. I have a thread there right now, so you can try to find mine to make sure you're in the right place.
  12. I'm not too sure I'm up to that yet. But I can definitely attempt it.
  13. Gotten some good improvement since the last post. My coordination up to G#4 is pretty decent. I can now use G#4 in most songs (with practice of course) I can get up to A#4 in exercises, but the coordination is not ingrained yet; its application in songs right now is very unreliable Here's a section of "Rooster" by AIC. I omitted a more difficult line with a B4 for obvious reasons
  14. I echo what ronws said, your voice has a very soft and gentle timbre that would suit some music exceptionally well.
  15. From my experience, it took me about 1 1/2 months to get the resonant tracking down. Like Robert said happens with beginners, I was pushing too hard at first and constricting around the passagio.
